    A Book of American Martyrs by Joyce Carol Oates, as published by 4th Estate:

    Gus Voorhees is a pioneer in the advancement of women’s reproductive rights and a controversial abortion provider in the American Midwest. One morning as he arrives at his clinic, he is ambushed by a hardline Christian, Luther Dunphy, and shot dead.

    (…) A heart-rending reckoning with some of the most incendiary issues that divide us in our troubled times – religious extremism; abortion; gun violence; capital punishment – this is a novel Joyce Carol Oates was born to write. To read it is to encounter the full spectrum of humanity – its ugliness, misery, beauty and hope.

    Harbour is used in all caps for titles and author’s name, and – slanted – for the quote on the top right, paired with a yet unidentified serif.

    1. I think the serif typeface on the top right is Monotype Garamond.
